fruit sports day
Hello, we're very sad to say that we've had to cancel our Fruit Sports Day. With so much stuff going on this summer in the run up to the Olympics, there's a lot of competition for people's time. A busy summer along with
a spell of bad weather has meant ticket sales for our Fruit Sports Day festival haven’t been as good as we'd needed them to be to ensure a great day out. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we think it's a much better decision to postpone this year and run a bigger and better event in the future.

If you've already bought a ticket, we'll be in touch shortly to refund you. If you have any other questions, please pop them through to

our new roof garden

We had a bit of a treat at the end of last week when Mike from Rocket Gardens came in to help us set up a veggie patch on the roof of fruit towers. It's something we've wanted to do for a while now and our Janel was amazing in getting everything ready for our very own office Eden. As you can see Janel is pretty excited that it all came together.

Here's Mike from Rocket Gardens with a bag of his trusty worm cast. Great for courgettes he tells us. Mike grew all the seedlings we planted and even knocked up the flowerbeds. Thank you Mike, you're the best. His wife was ready to give birth at any point too, so we hope he got back home in time.

The produce is looking good enough to eat already, although perhaps a little more patience is needed.

Mike also wouldn't tell us what one of the plants was. We're all pretty keen to find out, although if you can tell from the picture please don't let us know as we all like a good surprise.





no more grass...

Today we launched our Fruit Sports Day website. Lovingly hand drawn by Kirsty using our favourite (now discontinued) Karisma pencils.

It's fair to say Kirsty probably drew a football pitch worth of grass over the last few weeks and here's all that's left of her beloved green pencil. We're now on the look out for another brand of pencils to fall in love with. Suggestions welcome in the comments below.
